To me kindness means being nice,helping people and giving back.Sometimes kindness can bring you joy and sometimes sorry.I remembered the story of a young woman named Chidima back in Nigeria. She went for one year National Youth Service after graduation from College. During the youth service they were given monthly allowance for maintenance. But then her fellow youth corpers borrowed money from Chidima. So before she knew it, she has no money to feed herself .So she traveled back home to see if she can get money from her parents and some food stuff. She boarded a bus going from the North to the South, on the way they had a terrible accident, their bus somersaulted and fell into a ditch.The police men came including the road safety officers. They pulled the bus out from the ditch,one passenger didn’t survive but Chidima did with minor injuries. She was admitted for overnight observation. When she was discharged she realized that her friend who rode the bus with was badly injured, so she spent few days at the hospital to help her new friend Jennifer recover.She was with Jennifer when Jennifer ‘s father arrived at the hospital. She introduced herself as someone helping Jennifer with her needs.Jennifer father thank her for her kindness and she left for home. So, three days later,she went home and arrived safely. Where have you been her parents shouted?.The National Youth Service board from Jos are all looking for you and have threatened to expell you from Youth Service. She cried and told her ordeals to her parents. Her father comforted her and told her not to cry.They gave her foods ,some money and she returned back to her station.

When she returned the news was everywhere on how she helped a stranger. She got out pouring supports and love.She received so many gifts included money 💰, lots of 💰money from strangers. She refused to collect the money and gifts. They insisted.So she took the money from them and thank everyone. But she learned one big lesson while she was at the hospital. She realized that nurses do so much to help the sick.So she vowed to become a Registered Nurse.

Finally she became a Registered Nurse in the best country of the world-The UNITED STATES OF AMERICA 🇺🇸There is power in kindness.
